I spent last weekend and evenings this week marathoning Blue Bloods.Â Spent a few years resisting watching it, but it finally got its hooks in me.Â I’m coming up on the end of the episodes Netflix has available.Â What am I going to do with all this free time?
When I was watching Top Gear on Netflix several weeks ago, I was annoyed that the Polar Special wasn’t immediately available. Fortunately, it was added within a few days of me starting to watch the episodes off the service. Unfortunately, there was no audio! I don’t know if this was a unique problem to the Wii version of Netflix, but I assumed it was a one-time glitch and would soon fix itself. It didn’t. After a few weeks, I mentioned the problem to Netflix itself through their webpage. By this time, we had switched to watching Netflix over a Blu-Ray player. The Polar Special didn’t even show up on the list of episodes there! Well, I was pleased to find it finally showed up when I checked again tonight, and finally, it had audio! Now I could actually legitimately watch this show!
After installing Netflix on the Wii last month, I enjoyed the availability of tv shows I watched. But they weren’t in high-definition. Somehow I got my parents to agree with me, and we decided the best course of action was to get another Blu-Ray player. Mom was apparently eager to get it as soon as possible, so we bought a new one today. The old Blu-Ray player went upstairs to the other high-def tv, while the new one went to our Bravia. Integrated wi-fi, netflix, and assorted other apps made setting this Blu-Ray player up a little more complex than the old one. In fact, I had to call up Sony at one point to have them reset the registration – our player was a display item from Best Buy. A bit of a hassle dealing with that, but the $115 discount is hard to beat!
